Progressives: “Hey, Bill de Blasio – just no.”
Former New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio doesn’t know that people do not like him.
De Blasio announced his candidacy for a redrawn House seat in New York City, It includes Lower Manhattan and some of Brooklyn.
Current Rep. Jerry Nadler represents the 10th District. If the new map sticks, though, he will run to represent the 12th District, which is Manhattan.
Wherever I go, people ask: can things get better? I say from my heart: YES, but WE have to make them better. In our neighborhoods and our nation, the way to save our democracy is to be part of it. So as I declare my candidacy in #NY10 I ask you to join us: https://t.co/FaMeUQ5PES

De Blasio bragged on Morning Joe that he knows how to help people “from years of serving the people of this city.”
The former mayor even boasted about guiding NYC through COVID:
“I’m very proud of having led this city out of the worst of the COVID crisis,” de Blasio told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “I’m ready right now to serve and address the issues that are so deep in communities in Brooklyn and Manhattan, and I just wanted to come here, a place that I cherish, and with you who have been such good friends to tell you this is the next step and I want to serve the people of the community that is my home and that I love.”
No self-awareness. It’s pathetic and sad. I’m shocked he didn’t bring up his brilliant and almost successful presidential bid. (That’s sarcasm)
Let’s see how Democrats and progressives responded to the news.
Lol he announced on a national TV instead of doing it through an actual NYC media outlet. https://t.co/T5apKLEU64

I live in Manhattan's 10th District. I am, like most of my long-time neighbors, a true progressive, and I can tell you that my first response to hearing that @BilldeBlasio is running to be my congressman is pic.twitter.com/zQ7LqqD2UL

What I love about @BilldeBlasio (and so many over confident white dudes) is that they are undeterred by silly things like voters liking them, or popularity or anyone thinking they did a good job. impressive willful blindness really. If only us girls were half as over confident.

If you lived in NYC, you’d know de Blasio is useless. Most of us can’t stand him.
